2J3U-HEMN-26TJH + QTA2-RD19-7D31W Mega hammer jump: Amy
HYCK-6XPF-DBWWA + Z325-H8T6-28TGY Moon jump: Amy
W9UF-C4ZW-ZAPKY + W36B-30NG-4NMUT + 3G17-J9JR-JF7ET + 70EB-DYNX-MK5B7 + MTRA-NWFT-KZ4F2 Glide upwards: Knuckles (Y+A) - Knuckles will only go upwards 10 or so feet in the game and then even out and glide back down. Letting go and pressing again makes Knuckles go higher. Alternatively, holding Z and pressing A might do the normal upward glide at first, so hit A again and Knuckles will shoot upwards diagonally much higher than with just A.
A610-U7T8-KFQ8P + 8X6H-UD90-Y0TW7 Always free camera mode: This make scenes in the game where the camera was very well scripted, such as the whale chase in Emerald Coast, much more difficult to play. This will not affect the camera in cutscenes, however.
4PP1-7DKF-30JTH + 7B41-AZ0K-MVXYY Debug Menu: For Sonic Adventure DX, the Debug code works differently than in the Dreamcast version. It is not as full-featured as the Debug mode present in the Dreamcast version. When Sonic is running, a white "collision sphere" is drawn around him, sometimes the "death areas" (where the player can fall and die) are lit up in white, and on the adventure fields, the ring counter is always visible.
